What you'll learn in this soap making class:

In this workshop with La Shonda Tyree, who turned her hobby and passion for making her own soaps and lotions into a highly successful business, we will learn how to make a range of exquisite self-care products. We will begin by discovering the history and chemistry of soapmaking, and the safety practices required to manufacture soap. We will then get hands-on instruction in soapmaking using sodium hydroxide with the cold process method. 

We will explore how to unleash our creativity by customizing our soaps with colors, fragrances and/or essential oils; learn how to create luxurious soaps using alternative liquids such as Goat’s Milk; and make fabulous swirl patterns and embedding designs utilizing a couple of different methods that will make your soaps rival mass market soaps. 

Other topics will include: 
  • Resources for supplies and industry websites
  • Proper product labeling and preservation
  • Tips on how to start a business
Participants need to bring: goggles (to protect eyes), apron, spatula, rubber gloves (to protect hands), painter's mask, and sturdy bags (with a flat bottom) to transport soaps.

Special Note: A materials fee of $45 will be payable to the instructor. Participants will take home approximately 5 pounds of soap equavalent to 12 bars of handcrafted soaps ($84 retail value).

Please dress comfortably.
